    I didnt realize until I listened to this meeting that the Big 10 was an academic conference, from which Oregon will benefit from its extensive research activities.

    Emergency solved. We’re joining the big 10. Who cares about faculty or staff salaries and retention problems…

    Eugene airport better get that expansion done ASAP to support more direct flights to midwest hubs…

      and yes this action will significantly increase the UO carbon footprint associated with athletic travel

    From MSM published articles, UOwe and UW are getting less than 1/2 the payout the other BIG10 members will receive, and that lasts until 2030. From the time they entered, USC/UCLA received full payouts.

    Sort of analogous to four workers being hired, three get full pay, one get’s less than !/2. When asked why, da boss says that’s all you’re worth, take it or leave it. Maryland and Rutgers, which have little to no national athletic profile, are getting more than 2x what the PNW teams are receiving. Guess all that Nike PR schtick didn’t amount to much…
